The NDIA is making changes to the NDIS myplace portal to improve the process when there is a gap between new and old participant plans. Sometimes there is a delay in the approval of a new plan. This can create a ‘gap’ between the old plan and the new plan.
From Monday 2 September, participants will see improvements to the way their budget is displayed in the NDIS myplace participant portal. These improvements in the NDIS myplace participant portal will give detailed information about allocated and spent funding.
New information relating to compensation in the NDIS context is now available.
